“Overpowering…a barrage of psycho-analytical revelations and mysteries”
—Amos Vogel

Light is more menacing than the darkness that surrounds Philippe Garrel’s 65-minute trek into the unknown with a mother, a father, and their child reaching for freedom. Filmed in the midst of May ‘68 and starring Bernadette Lafont. Screening with Ian Hugo’s BELLS OF ATLANTIS (10 min), “a visual equivalent in subaqueous, drifting imagery taken from reality but entirely transformed into a new and sensuously poetic universe” featuring the prose of Anais Nin.
